Clarence Galbraith

November 19, 1930 - May 18, 2019


Clare was survived by his loving family: wife Doris of 39 years, children Deborah (Eric), Pam, Ian, Don and step children Erica and Twyla, sister-in-law Somsri (Lek), brothers Murray (Andree) and Gordon (Helen), numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

He was predeceased by his parents: Donald and Annie Mary Watt, sister Jean, brother Bruce and step-son Vance.

Clare was born at Nipawin, Saskatchewan and later moved his first family to the Seattle area.  He returned to Canada and continued his construction career in Oliver, Vernon and surrounding areas and met his second family.

Clare was laid to rest at the Gallagher Ranch. Reception followed at Inkameep Community Hall.  The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all the staff and doctors at South Okanagan General Hospital for their outstanding compassion care given to Clare from Sunday, May 12 to Saturday, May 18, 2019.

We also thank the staff of Osoyoos Indian Band Resource Centre and other cooks who prepared food for family who travelled to be here for Clare’s Celebration of Life.  He was sent on his journey with sounds of both cultures – bagpipes and the drum.

He was kind and generous and will be missed by many who knew and loved him.
